Prerequisites for Configuring Cisco 4G LTE


• You must have 4G LTE network coverage where your router is physically placed. For a complete list of
supported carriers, see the product data sheet.
• You must subscribe to a service plan with a wireless service provider and obtain a Subscriber Identity
Module (SIM) card.
• You must install the SIM card before configuring the 4G LTE Wireless WAN EHWIC or Cisco 819
router.
• The standalone antenna that supports GPS capabilities must be installed for the GPS feature to work.
See the Cisco 4G Indoor/Outdoor Active GPS Antenna (GPS-ACT-ANTM-SMA)
(http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/wireless/hardware/notes/gps_ant.html) document for
installation information.
• Both GPS and NMEA features must be configured for GPS coordinates to be obtained.

Restrictions for Configuring Cisco 4G LTE


Follow these restrictions and usage guideline while configuring Cisco 4G LTE:
• Currently, cellular networks support only user initiated bearer establishment.

Information about Configuring Cisco 4G LTE

• Due to the shared nature of wireless communications, the experienced throughput varies depending on
the number of active users or congestion in a given network.
• Cellular networks have higher latency compared to wired networks. Latency rates depend on the technology
and carrier. Latency may be higher because of network congestion. Latency also depends on the signal
conditions and can be higher because of network congestion.
• Any restrictions that are part of the terms of service from your carrier.
• SMS—Only one text message up to 160 characters to one recipient at a time is supported. Larger texts
are automatically truncated to the proper size before being sent.
• For the router that runs the SNMP agent, you must configure appropriate access control (for example,
SNMP-server community) using the Cisco IOS CLI for the NMS and agent to work properly.
• It is strongly recommended that you configure SNMP V3 with authentication/privacy when implementing
SNMP SET operation.

Overview of Cisco 4G LTE
Cisco EHWIC-4G-LTEs are single-wide Wireless WAN (WWAN) EHWICs supported on Cisco 1110 Series
routers. Cisco EHWIC-4G-LTEs operate over Fourth-Generation Long-Term Evolution (4G LTE) cellular
networks and Third-Generation (3G) cellular networks. The Cisco 4G LTE WWAN EHWIC offers a highly
secure, simplified, and cost-effective WAN alternative to DSL or Frame Relay. In areas where terrestrial
broadband services (cable, DSL, or T1) are not available or are expensive, 4G LTE WWAN connectivity can
be a viable alternative. Using the integrated services available on the Cisco 1110 series routers, Cisco 4G LTE
Wireless WAN EHWICs can provide instant and mobile communications during disasters and service outages.
Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs support the following 4G/3G modes:
• 4G LTE—4G LTE mobile specification provides multi-megabit bandwidth, more efficient radio network,
latency reduction, and improved mobility. LTE solutions target new cellular networks. These networks
initially support up to 100 Mb/s peak rates in the downlink and up to 50 Mb/s peak rates in the uplink.
The throughput of these networks is higher than the existing 3G networks
• 3G Evolution High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA/HSPA+)—HSPA is a UMTS-based 3G network. It
supports High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA)
data for improved download and upload speeds. Evolution High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) supports
Multiple Input/Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna capability.
• 3G Evolution-Data Optimized (EVDO or DOrA) Mode—EVDO is a 3G telecommunications standard
for the wireless transmission of data through radio signals, typically for broadband Internet access. DOrA
refers to EVDO Rev-A. EVDO uses multiplexing techniques including Code Division Multiple Access
(CDMA), as well as Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA), to maximize both individual users'
throughput and the overall system throughput.
The following table describes the Cisco 4G WWAN EHWIC product SKUs.

The following figure explains the 4G LTE packet core network architecture.

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration Guide

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
Overview of Cisco 4G LTE

Figure 1: 4G LTE Packet Core Network Architecture

Gateways The Serving Gateway (SGW) routes and forwards user data packets, while also acting as the
mobility anchor for the user plane, and is the anchor for mobility between LTE and other 3GPP
technologies. The Packet Data Network (PDN) Gateway (PGW) provides connectivity from the
User Equipment (UE) to external packet data networks by being the point of exit and entry of
traffic for the UE.
A UE may have simultaneous connectivity with more than one PGW for accessing multiple PDNs.
The PGW performs policy enforcement, packet filtering for each user, charging support, lawful
interception, and packet screening. Another key role of the PGW is to act as the anchor for mobility
between 3GPP and non-3GPP technologies such as WiMAX and 3GPP2 (CDMA 1X and EvDO).
The System Architecture Evolution GW (SAE GW) is the entity that covers the PGW and SGW
functionality in the Evolved Packet Core (EPC).

RNC The Radio Network Controller (RNC) is responsible for controlling the Radio Access Network
(RAN) that are connected to it. The RNC carries out radio resource management and some of the
mobility management functions and is the point where encryption is done before user data is sent
to and from the mobile. The RNC connects to the Circuit-Switched Core Network through the
Media Gateway (MGW).

Cisco 4G LTE Features


Cisco 4G LTE WWAN EHWICs, Cisco 1110 Series 4G LTE routers support the following major features:
• Global Positioning System (GPS) and National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) streaming.
• 4G Short Message Service (SMS)
• 3G/4G Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) MIB
• Auto-switch failover between primary and backup link
• Multichannel-interface-processor (MIP) profile configuration
• Remotely initiated data callback using voice
• Remotely initiated data callback using Short Message Service (SMS)
• Remote firmware upgrade over 4G LTE
• Virtual diagnostic monitoring
• Mobile Equipment Personalization (MEP) lock and unlock capabilities
• SIM lock and unlock capabilities
• Multiple PDN Contexts
• Quality of Service

4G GPS and NMEA


The Global Positioning System (GPS) feature is enabled by default on the supported Cisco 1110 Series routers
and Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs to provide the geographical location.
Active GPS is supported on the SubMiniature version A (SMA) port. Active GPS antenna is supported only
in the standalone mode. An Active GPS antenna includes a built-in Low-Noise Amplifier that provides
sufficient gain to overcome coaxial cable losses while providing the proper signal level to the GPS receiver.
Active GPS antennae require power from the GPS receiver SMA port to operate. See the Example: Connecting
to a Server Hosting a GPS Application section for more information.
National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) streams GPS data either from a 4G EHWIC or a Cisco
1110 series router through a virtual COM port and a TCP/IP Ethernet connection to any marine device (such
as a Windows-based PC) that runs a commercially available GPS-based application.
The following GPS and NMEA features are supported on the Cisco 1110 series routers:
• GPS standalone mode (satellite-based GPS).
• Cisco IOS CLI display coordinates.
• Virtual and physical serial ports can export NMEA-formatted GPS data.
• External application displays router map location.
• Objects in the CISCO-WAN-3G-MIB supports GPS and NMEA features.
• The Cisco 4G LTE EHWIC supports only the IP NMEA streaming option.
• The Cisco 1110 series routers can support either IP or serial NMEA streaming options.

Note Assisted GPS mode is not supported.

For instructions on setting up the GPS antenna, see the Cisco 4G Indoor/Outdoor Active GPS Antenna
(GPS-ACT-ANTM-SMA) document.
For information on Customer Advisory on GPS rollover, see the Mandatory firmware upgrade for all MC73xx
Modems document.

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
Short Message Service (SMS) Capabilities

Connecting to a Server Hosting a GPS Application


You can feed the NMEA data to a remote server that hosts the GPS application. The server can be connected
to the router either directly using an Ethernet cable or through a LAN or WAN network. If the application
supports serial port, run a serial port emulation program to create a virtual serial port over the LAN or WAN
connection.

Note Microsoft Streets & Trips is a licensed software that you can download from the Microsoft website.

To connect a Cisco 1110 series router through IP to a PC running Microsoft Streets & Trips, perform the
following steps:
1. Connect the PC to the router using an Ethernet cable.
2. Ensure that the PC and router can ping.

Short Message Service (SMS) Capabilities


Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs and Cisco 1110 series routers support receiving, transmitting, archiving, and deleting
of SMS messages. This support includes the ability to view up to 25 received texts, and archive more messages
in a custom file location. SMS is supported on multiple carriers. Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs and Cisco 1110
series routers also have the capability to revert from LTE SMS to 3G and 2G SMS technology if necessary.
A sending device behind a Cisco 4G LTE router transmits an SMS text message over the 4G cellular link
through cellular towers until it the message reaches the recipient’s router, which then notifies the recipient
device, such as a cell phone. The receiving device uses the same process to return a reply to the sending device.
The following figure describes the flow from a mobile device to a sending device. For SMS transmission to
work, end users must have a text-capable device, and optionally, a text plan. If end users do not have a text
plan, standard SMS rates apply to their text transmissions.
The SMS-initiated Data Callback feature allows customers to set up a data connection by sending a text
message to the Cisco 4G LTE router and includes the message screening functionality using the originating
number to improve feature security and eliminate unauthorized callback requests.

Using a SIM Card

Figure 2: SMS Network

Using a SIM Card


Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs and Cisco 1110 series routers need an active SIM card provided by a service provider.
The SIM cards are usually provided in an unlocked state so that it can be used without a Personal Identification
Number (PIN). If the SIM is unlocked, it can be inserted into an EHWIC and used without an authorization
code.
The SIM can be initially locked with a PIN code (4 to 8 digits s long) defined by the service provider. Contact
your service provider for the PIN code.
The SIM-Lock feature allows a SIM to be locked or unlocked with a PIN code so that it is used only in an
authorized device. Perform the SIM lock and unlock procedures using the Cisco IOS CLI through a console
or Telnet/SSH to the router.
After the SIM is locked, it cannot initiate a call unless authentication is done using the same PIN. Authentication
is done automatically by Cisco IOS through configuration of the PIN. This mandatory configuration for
automatic SIM authentication is done using the Cisco IOS CLI as part of the router startup configuration.
After the Cisco IOS configuration is in place, the router can initiate an LTE connection. The router uses the
configured PIN to authenticate prior to the LTE connection. If the Cisco IOS PIN configuration is missing or
if the PIN is incorrect, the SIM authentication will fail and the connection will not be initiated.
If the locked SIM is moved to a different router or to another device, or if the EHWIC in which the locked
SIM resides is moved to a different EHWIC slot in the same router, the router configuration should be changed.
The configuration is associated with the cellular controller that is specific to a router EHWIC slot number.

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration Guide


33
Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
Data Account Provisioning

This will ensure that the SIM card will not be used in any unauthorized device, or, if there are multiple LTE
EHWICs in a single ISR, that the appropriate PIN is applied to each LTE EHWIC/SIM. An authentication
command (with the same PIN used to lock the SIM) must be defined on the new device or on the new cellular
controller slot to successfully initiate the LTE connection.

Note It is very important to use the correct PIN after it is configured. The SIM card will be blocked if the wrong
PIN is entered three consecutive times on a locked SIM during authentication or when trying to unlock a
locked SIM. You can unblock a blocked SIM card using the PUK code. Contact your service provider for the
PUK code. Use the cellular slot lte sim unblock PUK-code new-PIN-code command to unblock the SIM.

The following procedures are used to configure a SIM:

Data Account Provisioning


One or more modem data profiles can be created to provision a modem on a 3G or 4G EHWIC. An active
wireless account with a service provider with one or more (dual) SIM cards must be installed. The modem
data profile is preconfigured on the modem.
The following tasks are used to verify the signal strength and service availability of the modem and to create,
modify, and delete modem data profiles:

IP Multimedia Subsystem Profiles


IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) profiles establish a session, and are a part of the modem configuration and
are stored in the modem's NVRAM. An IMS network is an access-independent and standard-based IP
connectivity service that enables different types of multimedia services to end users using common
Internet-based protocols. See Creating, Modifying, or Deleting Modem Data Profiles, on page 49, for more
information.

Usage Guidelines for Creating, Modifying, or Deleting Data Profiles


You can create multiple profiles on Cisco 4G LTE EHWICs and Cisco 1110 series routers. The following are
the default Internet profile numbers for some of the modems:
• MC7700—Profile 1
• MC7710—Profile 1
• MC7750—Profile 3
• MC7304—Profile 1
• MC7350—Profile 3
• MC7354—Profile 1
• MC7430—Profile 1
For information on supported modems on each SKU, see the tables in the Overview of Cisco 4G LTE, on
page 2.
The maximum number of profiles that can be created for each modem is given as follows:
• MC7700—Up to 16 profiles
• MC 7710—Up to 16 profiles
• MC7750—Up to 6 profiles
• MC7304—Up to 16 profiles
• MC7350—Up to 6 profiles

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration Guide


34
Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
4G LTE LEDs

• MC7354—Up to 16 profiles
• MC7430—Up to 16 profiles
The default data profile numbers for the various modem SKUs are given as follows:
• • MC7700, MC7710, MC7354, MC7304 – Profile 1
• MC7750, MC7350– Profile 3
• MC7430–Profile 1

The data profile is displayed by using the show cellular unit profile command with an asterisk(*).
Follow these guidelines while you configure a data profile:
• In most cases, you do not have to make any profile-related changes if your modem comes with a data
profile, for instance, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon.
• If any profile parameter changes are required for a connection type, the changes will most likely be
carried out in the default profiles.
• To configure different profile types and use them for a different connection, you can create separate
profiles with different parameters (for instance, APN names). Note that only one profile is active at a
given time.
• Use the show cellular profile command to view the data profile. An asterisk(*) is displayed against the
data profile.
• The data profile is used to set up a data call. If you want to use a different profile, that profile needs to
be made the default one. Use the lte sim data-profile number command to change the default profile.
• To verify the completed sets of 3GPP and 3GPP2 profiles, enable the debug cellular 0/x/0 message
profile command and then enter the show cellular 0 profile command. This debug command is applicable
for 4G LTE SKUs with MC7750 and MC7350 modems.
If you are using the MC7750(EHWIC-LTE-4G-V and C819-LTE-4G-V), avoid modifying the ims profile
(Profile 1 displayed in the show command with a ** against it). Typically, you have to modify Profile 3 for
an APN update.

Note For the EHWIC, the unit argument identifies the router slot, WIC slot, and port separated by slashes (0/0/0).
For the Cisco 1110 Series 4G LTE routers, the unit argument identifies slot “0” for all commands.

Multiple PDN Contexts


This feature enables router to connect to multiple (currently two) packet data networks. This allows users to
enable different features independently on each PDN. For instance, the first PDN can be used for public
Internet access and the second one for VPN connectivity; each PDN has its own set of IP addresses and QoS
characteristics.
During the initialization of the router, two cellular interfaces corresponding to the two PDNs are created:
• cellular 0/x/0 and cellular 0/x/1 on EHWIC
• cellular 0 and cellular 1 on C8xx

These interfaces can be viewed as two logical interfaces using the same radio resources.

Note This feature is supported on Global, Australia, Canada, and AT&T SKUs. This feature is not supported on
Sprint and Verizon SKUs.

Note Here onwards, the interface cellular 0/x/0 on EHWIC and cellular 0 on C8xx are referred as the first PDN,
and cellular 0/x/1 on EHWIC and cellular 1 on C8xx as the second PDN.

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration Guide


37
Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
Call History

The first step, in bringing up the two PDNs, is applying the configuration on both the cellular interfaces and
their corresponding lines, in order to make two simultaneous data calls.
The next step is associating the data-bearer profile with its corresponding cellular interface or PDN. It is
sufficient to associate the profile for just the first PDN under the controller cellular configuration. Note that
the second PDN assumes a profile that is just one above the profile used for the first PDN. For example, if
the first PDN uses profile 1, the second PDN uses profile 2 automatically when the call is initiated for the
second one.
After the interesting traffic is routed through these cellular interfaces, data calls are initiated and each interface
is assigned its own IP and DNS addresses provided by the cellular network. Note that both PDNs share radio
resources. Therefore, any throughput measurement needs to take into account the aggregate throughput on
both PDNs, instead of just one.

Call History
Call history maintains the history of the last three calls. The following details are recorded in the call history:
• Tx/Rx bytes
• Reason for disconnecting the call
• Duration of the call
• Who disconnected the call; User, Modem, or Network
Use the show cellular unit connection history command to display the call history. Note that this feature
has dependency on modem firmware and SDK used.
The following example shows the output of the command when the call connection is up:

c1921-mc7304#show cell 0/1/0 connection call-history

Dual SIM
The Dual SIM feature provides a failover mechanism in case the active SIM loses connectivity to the network.

Quality of Service

Note Dual SIM is supported only on Cisco 819 Series 4G LTE ISRs, Cisco C880 Series 4G LTE ISRs and Cisco
C890 Series 4G LTE ISRs. Dual SIM is not supported on EHWICs although modular ISRs can have multiple
4G EHWICs.

Usage Guidelines for Configuring a Dual SIM


Follow these guidelines while you configure a dual SIM:
• By default, SIM slot 0 is the primary slot, and slot 1 is the backup.
• To change the primary SIM slot, use the lte sim primary command in the cellular controller configuration
mode.
• Assign profiles for each SIM using the lte sim data-profile command. Each SIM has an associated data
profile and an attach profile.
• In the lte sim data-profile command, the profile-number refers to the data profile associated with a SIM.
The attach-profile-number is the attach profile associated with a SIM.

If the attach profile details are not provided by or are not relevant to the carrier, you
can assign the same number as the data profile. Otherwise, create a profile with the
carrier-specific attach profile

parameters and assign that profile number using the lte sim data-profile
command.

Quality of Service
Quality of Service (QoS) ensures priority treatment for certain services during times of congestion in the
network. In an LTE network, the QoS is implemented between a User Equipment (UE) and a Packet Data
Network (PDN) gateway. QoS treatment is applied to a set of associated data bearers. A bearer is a virtual
data path between the UE and the PDN gateway that carries a particular type of service, such as VoIP. A
bearer is identified by a set of parameters, known as Traffic Flow Template (TFT) parameters. Both the
network the and IOS configurations apply bandwidth related parameters to these bearers, so as to achieve an
end-to-end bearer-level QoS. For example, VoIP traffic is carried by a particular bearer which is assigned a
guaranteed bandwidth, and is prioritized over the web browser traffic which is carried over by another bearer.
Cisco 4G-LTE interface on ISRG2 routers supports only network-initiated QoS. If the QoS is subscribed by
a given UE, the network establishes the bearers between the UE and the core network after the UE has attached
to the network. Otherwise, only a default data-bearer is created between the UE and the network. No user
intervention is needed for the purposes of establishing these dedicated bearers.
Cisco 4G-LTE interface on ISRG2 routers support a maximum of 8 bearers. These bearers are created based
on the Traffic Flow Template (TFT) parameters that are downloaded to the UE after it attaches to the core
network. The host router must be configured to shape the overall traffic, as well as the IOS QoS configured
parameters on the router must match the subscribed LTE QoS parameters. When the service falls back to 3G,
the UE sets up a primary PDP context and the dedicated bearers are removed, with all the traffic flowing via
a single PDP context.
The following restrictions apply for QoS:
• UE-initiated QoS is not supported.
• The QoS parameters are determined by the carrier's service contract with the user.

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration Guide


39
Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
Quality of Service Configuration

• IOS QoS configuration should match with the subscribed QoS of the service provider network. If there
are any changes in the subscribed LTE QoS parameters, this must be correspondingly reflected in the
IOS QoS configuration.

Note LTE QoS is supported in Cisco IOS 15.5(1)T and later releases.

Quality of Service Configuration


The following figure is a diagrammatic representation of implementing QoS on 4G LTE network.
Figure 3: QoS on 4G LTE Network

The following example shows a sample recommended configuration. In this example:


• Traffic from the end user is marked in ISRG2 routers; this enables the customer to map their traffic with
the carrier-provided LTE QoS policy.
• Traffic from the end-user devices is marked in Ingress interfaces, and is policed in Egress interfaces.
Policing in Egress interface can be done based on the carrier provided policy.
• The wide area cellular network is a shared medium and hence it is a variable bandwidth environment.
By designing and implementing an effective traffic control policy at the Egress interface (cellular interface),
radio resources can be efficiently utilized to support business critical applications. For the IOS QoS to
work correctly, the onus is on the end user to determine the appropriate LTE bandwidth for traffic shaping
purposes.
In this example, the carrier has provided the following LTE policy:

• 1 default bearer: Best effort


• 1 Non-GBR dedicated bearer: Allow DSCP CS4: Rate-limited to 500 Kbps
• 1 GBR dedicated bearer: Allow DSCP CS5: rate limited to 50 Kbps
• Overall average bandwidth is taken into account and the egress traffic is shaped to 1.5 Mbps

Troubleshooting QoS

For more information about configuring QoS features, see Quality of Service Solutions Configuration Guide
Library, Cisco IOS Release 15M&T.

Troubleshooting QoS
The cellular interface notifies a user with a syslog message when QoS is enabled during the router boot-up,
or when the modem attaches to the network. It also sends a message when a TFT profile is added, deleted, or
modified by the core network. Users need to change the configuration on their side to match TFT profile. The
following table lists the syslog messages generated for various events.

Cellular Modem Link Recovery

Cellular Modem Link Recovery


The Cellular Modem Link Recovery feature is used to check whether the modem functions properly and bring
back the modem to normal operation state if the modem is in inoperative state. When an inoperative state is
identified, the modem is reset (the cellular modem is power cycled). Link recovery is enabled by default.
There are four configurable parameters to adjust the behavior of cellular link recovery. The default values
have been optimized for the best performance of the feature and changing it is not recommended unless advised
by Cisco.
The following table explains the cellular modem link recovery parameters.

Table 6: Cellular Modem Link Recovery Parameters

Parameter Description

rssi This parameter defines the RSSI value below which the link recovery feature triggers
onset-threshold additional scrutiny to look for potential issues and take action if needed. The range of
this parameter can be set from -90 dBm to -125 dBm. The recommended and default
value is -110 dBm.

monitor-timer This parameter determines how often link recovery looks for potential issues. The default
value for this parameter is 20 seconds which means, link recovery feature will be
triggered every 20 seconds and look at certain parameters to determine if there is a
potential issue. You can configure the monitor-timer range between 20 to 60 seconds.
Increasing the monitor timer value above 20 seconds will increase the response time of
the feature.

wait-timer and The wait-timer parameter is used in conjunction with the debounce-count parameter to
debounce-count perform more frequent, additional checks, once the link recovery feature has identified
a potential issue that needs to be recovered from, with a modem power-cycle. The default
value for wait-timer is 10 seconds and the default value for debounce- count is 6. With
this setting, once link recovery has identified an inoperative modem state, it performs
additional checks every 10 seconds, up to 6 times, to determine if the issue has been
resolved without a modem reset. Reducing the debounce-count and the wait-timer makes
faster link recovery, while reducing them may increase the time for recovery. The
configurable range for wait-timer is 5-60 seconds. The configurable range for
debounce-count is 6-20 seconds.

Cellular Modem Link Recovery Monitoring and Statistics


When the cellular modem link recovery occurs and modem is reset, you can see the
%CELLWAN-2-MODEM_DOWN message on the console logs. Effective with Cisco IOS release
15.6(2.0c)T0, additionally there is a %CELLWAN-2-LINK_RECOVERY message which indicates that
action has been taken by the cellular modem link recovery feature.
Whenever the cellular modem link recovery is occurred, it updates the Modem timeouts counter under the
Modem Management Statistics section of the show controller cellular unit command output. Modem
parameters at the last timeout section has information that helps to identify the cause of the issue that triggered
link recovery
In the following example log, the messages, modem time out counter, and modem parameters at the last time
out are highlighted.

Selecting the Network


There are three ways to select an available network: Auto mode, Force Mode, and Manual mode. In Auto
mode, the router will connect automatically to a network preferred by the SIM card. In Force mode, the router
is forced to select an available or known network without performing a network search. If a network is not
available or the router is unable to attach to a network, then the router will remain in a ‘Not attached’ state.
You can use the cellular x lte plan select auto command to attach the router to a network preferred by the
SIM. In Manual mode, you can select an available network from your search result.
The following example shows how to select a network manually:

Configuring DDR Backup


To monitor the primary connection and initiate the backup connection when needed, the router can use one
of the following methods:
• Backup Interface—The backup interface that stays in standby mode until the primary interface line
protocol is detected as down and then is brought up.
• Floating Static Route—The route through the backup interface has an administrative distance that is
greater than the administrative distance of the primary connection route and therefore would not be in
the routing table until the primary interface goes down.
• Dialer Watch—Dialer watch is a backup feature that integrates dial backup with routing capabilities.

Upgrading the Modem Firmware Manually for MC7430 Modem


For MC74XX modems and the later versions, firmware will be provided as three separate files. The three
files are firmware file with .cwe extension, carrier provisioning file (PRI) with .nvu extension, and Cisco
(OEM) PRI file with .nvu extension. The supported Cisco IOS software for this firmware upgrade procedure
is <release number?> and later versions.
Three types of firmware upgrades are possible depending on the requirements.
• Upgrading firmware file and carrier PRI file.
• Upgrading only the carrier provisioning file used to switch from one carrier to other.
• Upgrading only the Cisco OEM PRI file which is used to upgrade from the old Cisco OEM PRI file to
the new Cisco OEM PRI file.
You should download only the required files for each firmware upgrade procedure. As part of the firmware
upgrade, you need to create a directory in the router flash. The directory should contain only the required files

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration Guide


74
Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
Upgrading Firmware File and Carrier PRI file

for the specific firmware upgrade procedure. For example, if you are upgrading only the carrier provisioning
file, the directory should only contain the carrier provisioning file.

Note You should always execute the firmware upgrade command from flash. If you execute the firmware upgrade
command inside a directory or folder the firmware upgrade may fail.

Note You should reload the router after the modem firmware upgrade.

Note When you create a directory in the flash for firmware upgrade, you shouldn’t create any subdirectories under
the directory.

Upgrading Firmware File and Carrier PRI file


Perform the following steps to manually upgrade the firmware file and carrier PRI file for MC7430 modem.

Procedure

Step 1 Go to the Cisco web page http://software.cisco.com/download/navigator.html to download the latest certified
firmware for your carrier which can be found under the path: Products -> Cisco Interfaces and Modules ->
LTE Wireless WAN Interfaces
Step 2 Download the firmware files to the router flash over Ethernet or cellular or any other WAN interface. This
can be done by hosting the firmware files on a FTP or TFTP server and reaching to that server via any WAN
interface on the router.
Step 3 Create a directory in the flash.
Example:

Router# mkdir Package_02.14.03.00_Telstra_002.013_000


Create directory filename [Package_02.14.03.00_Telstra_002.013_000] Y?
Created dir flash:/Package_02.14.03.00_Telstra_002.013_000

Step 4 Copy the firmware files to the created directory in the flash. Before you copy the firmware, make sure that
the files are available in a TFTP server.
Example:

Router# copy tftp flash:/Package_02.14.03.00_Telstra_002.013_000

Step 5 Ensure that the firmware file (CWE) and carrier PRI file (NVU) have the same version and both files are
available under the same directory.
Example:

Router# dir flash:Package_02.14.03.00_Telstra_002.013_000


Directory of flash:/Package_02.14.03.00_Telstra_002.013_000/

but 74XX_02.14.03.00.cwe and 7430_02.08.02.000_TELSTRA_001.nvu is not a valid combination.
Similarly, 74XX_02.14.03.00.cwe and 7430_02.14.03 _GENERIC_001.nvu is also a valid combination

Step 6 Initiate the firmware upgrade process using the microcode reload cellular command. When you use this
command, provide the directory name instead of firmware file name.
For EHWIC-LTE-LA, EHWIC-LTE-JN, and EHWIC-LTE-CI
Example:

Router# microcode reload cellular 0

For C819GW-LTE-LA-CK9, C819GW-LTE-LA-QK9, C819GW-LTE-LA-NK9


Example:

Router# microcode reload cellular 0 lte modem-provision flash:/


directory

Step 7 Once the firmware upgrade begins, wait for a few minutes. The firmware upgrade may take upto 7 minutes.
The following message will be displayed if the firmware upgrade is successful.
For EHWIC-LTE-LA, EHWIC-LTE-JN, EHWIC-LTE-CI, C898EAG-LTE-LA-K9, and

Cisco Network PnP Discovery Over 4G Interface

Current RSRQ = -11 dB


Current SNR = 4.8 dB

Radio Access Technology(RAT) Selected = LTE

Cisco Network PnP Discovery Over 4G Interface


Cisco Network Plug and Play (PnP) over 4G interface is available on platforms that have 4G NIMs and running
Cisco IOS Release 15.7M&T or later releases. When you boot a device with an activated SIM card, the 4G
interface is activated and used for the Cisco Network PnP cloud discovery process. When you boot a device
without an activated SIM card, the non-4G interfaces are preferred for the discovery process. Cisco Network
PnP cloud discovery over 4G interfaces is attempted when the non-4G interfaces are not available or if the
Cisco Network PnP discovery does not succeed on the non-4G interfaces. When the device has multiple 4G
interfaces with active SIM cards, the Cisco Network PnP will try the cloud discovery on all the 4G interfaces
one after the other until one of them succeeds.
By default, Cisco Network PnP Cloud discovery over 4G interfaces works when all the 4G interfaces are
activated during the device bootup. In the absence of a startup configuration, the device attempts to bring up
the 4G interface by default and attempts Cisco PnP over cloud. After the device is redirected, the device
connects to the Cisco Network PnP server and downloads the appropriate image and configuration to the
device.

Note PnP Discovery over 4G Interface supports only IPv4.

Note Image upgrade on Cisco IR800 and Cisco CGR1000 is not supported. Only configuration upgrade is supported.

Note Ensure that the configuration pushed through the Cisco Network PnP server contains a route to the Cisco
Network PnP server over the 4G interface. This route can be a default route and should retain the Cisco
Network PnP agent and server communication to continue to work over the 4G interface, after the provisioning
is completed.

Prerequisites for Cisco Network PnP Discovery Over 4G Interface


• 4G NIMs have an activated SIM card inserted in it.
• The modem has the correct firmware. If the firmware on the modem is generic, you have to configure
the Access Point Name (APN) manually.
• Antennas are properly installed and radio signal is good.
• You have to program the PnP Connect (the cloud redirect server) to its appropriate server. Using your
smart account credentials, you can do it at software.cisco.com portal. For more information on how to
do it, see
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOTK6Sb5gRQ&list=PLGqSRuvZkXDcw0lCR-vBPNIos05kMsagu&index=4

How PnP over 4G LTE Works

How PnP over 4G LTE Works


The following workflow shows how PnP works over 4G LTE:

Table 8: PnP over 4G LTE Workflow

Steps Process

Step 1 4G modem attaches to the base station and obtains a DHCP IP address.

Step 2 DHCP allocates an IP address to the cellular interface. After that, the PnP
discovery process starts.

Step 3 The router connects to Cisco Plug and Play Connect portal at
devicehelper.cisco.com over a secure HTTPS channel. The portal redirects the
device to its appropriate PnP Server or Controller.

Step 4 The APIC-EM server securely provisions the configuration and image.

The following figure illustrates the workflow:


Figure 8: PnP Over 4G LTE Workflow Diagram

Troubleshooting
You do not need to manually enable PnP. PnP is enabled automatically when the router boots up.

Note PnP is not invoked if the startup configuration is present in the router.

The following log file shows a successful scenario of the PnP boot-up:

Enabling Serviceability
Serviceability or Non-Access Stratum (NAS) is a set of protocols in the Evolved Packet System. The NAS is
used to convey non-radio signaling between the User Equipment (UE) and the Mobility Management Entity
(MME). The serviceability feature collects the NAS messages during a network outage and helps you to
narrow down the issues on the network or UE side.

Restrictions
Follow these restrictions and usage guideline while configuring serviceability .
• This feature is not supported on the C819GW router and 4G CGM module.

Enabling Serviceability
The following example shows how to enable serviceability:
Router#config terminal
Router(config)#controller cellular 0/0/0
Router(config-controller)#lte modem svb-log enable
Router(config-controller)#end

The following example shows how to specify the log size and the file size of the log file:
Router#config terminal
Router(config)#controller cellular 0/0/0
Router(config-controller)#lte modem svb-log size 0
Router(config-controller)#lte modem svb-log filesize 1

Configuring and Verifying Maximum Transmission Unit


This section explains how to configure the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) on a cellular interface.

Note You can set a MTU of 2K on the cellular interface if your service provider's network can support it.

Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration Guide


84
Cisco 4G LTE Software Configuration
Prerequisites for Configuring MTU

Prerequisites for Configuring MTU


• The network of the Service Provider support Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) of 2K.
• Before you configure the feature, you have to upgrade the OEM PRI file of the modem.

Restrictions
Follow these restrictions and usage guideline while configuring MTU.
• This feature (MTU of 2K) is supported only on the EM7455, MC7304, and MC7354MNA modems.

Configuring MTU
The supported MTU value is determined only after a call is established between the modem and the network.
The cellular interface can accept an MTU value up to 2000 bytes.
The following example shows how to set the MTU value to 2000:
Router#config terminal
Router(config)#interface cellular 0/0/0
Router(config-if)#mtu 2000
Router(config-if)#end

Verifying MTU Configuration


Use the show cellular slot network command to verify the MTU configuration. Note that the MTU value is
available only after a call is established between the modem and the network.
The following example shows the output of the command before a call:
Router#show cellular 1 network
Current System Time = Sun Jan 6 0:1:39 1980
Current Service Status = Normal
Current Service = Packet switched
Current Roaming Status = Roaming
Network Selection Mode = Automatic
Network = 123 456
Mobile Country Code (MCC) = 123
Mobile Network Code (MNC) = 456
Packet switch domain(PS) state = Attached
LTE Carrier Aggregation state = Deconfigured
Registration state(EMM) = Registered
EMM Sub State = Normal Service

Cisco 4G-LTE Wireless WAN EHWIC.
For LED descriptions, see Cisco 4G LTE Wireless WAN EHWIC .

Verifying Data Call Setup


To verify the data call setup, follow these steps:
1. After you create a modem data profile using the cellular profile create command and configuring DDR
on the cellular interface, send a ping from the router to a host across the wireless network.
2. If the ping fails, debug the failure by using the following debug and show commands:
• debug chat
• debug modem
• debug dialer
• show cellular all
• show interface cellular
• show running-config
• show ip route
3. Save the output from these commands and contact your system administrator.

Checking Signal Strength


If the Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) level is very low (for example, if it is less than –110 dBm),
follow these steps:

Procedure

Step 1 Check the antenna connection. Make sure the TNC connector is correctly threaded and tightened.
Step 2 If you are using a remote antenna, move the antenna cradle and check if the RSSI has improved.
Step 3 Contact your wireless service provider to verify if there is service availability in your area.

Modem Troubleshooting Using Integrated Modem DM Logging


As part of the 3G and 4G serviceability enhancement in Cisco IOS Release 15.2(4)M2 and Cisco IOS Release
15.3(1)T, DM log collection has been integrated into Cisco IOS, eliminating the need for an external PC and
simplifying the DM log collection process. The lte modem dm-log command can be used in controller cellular
configuration mode to configure integrated DM logging to monitor traffic on the modem. See the Cisco 3G
and 4G Serviceability Enhancement User Guide for more information on configuring Integrated DM Logging
parameters.

Modem Settings for North America and Carriers Operating on 700 MHz Band
